“From the first track to the last, Nick Verzosa proves that he’s the real deal. And the five stellar tracks on “The Smoking Gun EP” will leave Texas Country music aficionados aching for a complete album.”

After a full year of highway mileage including performances at Texas’ most prestigious venues and 2 Top 30 singles on the Texas Music Chart and Texas Regional Radio Report, at last a complete record is set for it’s release this fall on September 20th.

Returning to the studio once again with the highly regarded producer/singer/songwriter Walt Wilkins and vaunted engineer Ron Flynt behind the glass, Nick Verzosa brings “She Only Loves Me” to a Texas music scene aching for the next generation of real singer/songwriters to make their voices and lyrics heard. Combining a classically country sound with a rockabilly attitude, this 10 song album brings the kind of energy and emotion you can expect from the live show, which is said to be a different experience every night. Relatable lyrics flow over the smooth gravel in the bottom of Nick’s voice and tumble powerfully over the edge in the most poignant moments of his songs.

Staunchly independent, Nick has proven to be that necessary mix of pure talent, hard work and personality required to dig deep roots into the always competitive Texas music market and shows the ability to spread his branches outside the state lines as well. Averaging 4 shows a week is nothing uncommon for he and his 4 piece band of talented musicians as they continue to impress and entertain a constantly growing fan-base. His strong belief in working hard for what you want is self-evident in his road-warrior mentality, still finding time to vigilantly hone his songwriting craft, what he would tell you is his true passion.

“I feel very blessed to have been prepared for the opportunities that have unexplainably come my way. Everyone I’ve met along this journey, from band members to collaborators to business associates to loved ones have positively affected me somehow and even though we’ve worked very hard, the pieces have seemed to just fall together. I can’t wait to see whats around the next corner.”

Nick Verzosa  07/20/2010   
Success in the music industry is dependent on talent, hard work and a good amount of luck. But the process is whole lot easier if an artist has the frequently mentioned "it" factor. From the first track to the last, Nick Verzosa proves that he's the real deal. And the five stellar tracks on "The Smoking Gun EP" will leave Texas country music aficionados aching for a complete 11 or 12 song album. The EP begins with the terrific "Look Back To Texas," which has a cool, laid-back Texas country vibe reminiscent of Wade Bowen and Brandon Rhyder. "Look Back To Texas" is a new Texas country classic that has a memorable Red Dirt melody. The sparse and intense "Somethin' Lucky" is a Chris Knight style "story in song" that works on all levels. However, the project really comes into its own with the ballad "Let It Go." Nick Verzosa's pure vocal style is on full display in this beautiful love song. "Back When Love Easy" is another intensely personal love song. The project's final track "When It's All Said And Done" introduces the powerful vocals of Courtney Stefan in a duet with Verzosa. The album's professional polish is courtesy of producer Walt Wilkins, a Texas country music legend. Wilkins and Ron Flynt mixed the project at Jumping Dog Studio. Nick Verzosa is a Red Dirt artist that should be carefully watched, and listeners of the "The Smoking Gun EP" will be expecting great things. With a project as good as "The Smoking Gun EP," a full album could not come soon enough.
